“Fantastic”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 24, 2011

We stayed at the Orestis for 2 weeks and came home on 13th June 2011. Great setting, just five mins walk from the main strip, right on the beach. We had a two bedroomed apartment, which had 2 seperate bedrooms, kitchen with table and bathroom. The balcony spanned both patio doors of each bedroom. One bedroom had two single beds, the other had 3. Plenty of room everywhere. Fab views out to sea. Towels and sheets changed regularly and room cleaned every day. Staff were fantastic, especially Lynn who looks after the bar during the day and Yiannis who does the bar at night. Free safety deposit boxes. Really loved this place and would love to go back again.

We have just had a wk at orestis and found the whole holiday great. The apartments were cleaned every day by friendly staff. The view from the balcony was great, waking up to a view of the sea every day, heaven!! The pools were spotless and the beach which we used every day were in a perfect position, just across from the apartments. You could have a choice of a quiet night by using the tavernas on the way to the main town or join the many bars and restaurants just 10mins walk. We would certainly recommend the orestis to any one, young and old! and hope one day to return.

well where do i start.we travelled with co-op travel on monach airline.it was a brill flight there and got there safely.the transfere was 1 hour to our destination which was sidari in corfu to our hotel orestis apartments.we were greeted nicely and the greek are very friendly and felt a warm welcome.the apartment was nice and the rooms were big enough for me,me partner and separate room for our three children.we all enjoyed staying at this hotel we went self catering.i though that it was quite cheap to go out for meals and you really do get your moneys worth.it was about 5.50 euros for a meal and 2 euros for a beer.which is reasonable and so we eat out every dinner and tea time.there was always something to do in sidari so you will never get bored.our hotel was 2 seconds away from our hotel pool which was very handy indeed for us with a 9 year old,7 year old and a 6 year old the children loved it and want to go back and so do we.i would reccomend this holiday and this hotel.the sidari town had everything there and it was only 5 mins away to get to everything.we all loved it so much.a place to go

We arrived slightly underwhelmed at the overall welcome and room but as there were only two of us, the fact that only one bedroom had Air Con wasn't a problem but families might struggle in August. I thought the 7 euro a night charge for air conditioning was a bit steep and effectively added a hundred quid to the overall holiday cost immediately. As we settled into the holiday we soon discovered Giannis and the staff to a large extent 'make' the stay at the Orestis, the rooms are clean, basic and serve the basic purpose of a place to 'sleep and dress'. Orestis appts are in a great location, quiet and away from the noisy commercial centre of Sidari (which is a bit too commercial for me but ok) but are near enough to the quiet tavernas that line the road into Sidari. I would return to the Orestis but the Sidari high street may just deter me...

What a damn disapointment! We arrived in Sidari 26th July - great place me the wife and kids. Finally got to the Orestis apartments. First off no balcony - and we could not change rooms until the 2nd week. As for the rooms the first night we were eaten alive by mosquitos, ok this happens in this area but its so simple and cheap to buy a plug with mosquito repellant for the electric socket. Then we were also told Air con - 7euros per night!!! But funny part is only 1 of the bedrooms (if i can call them that) had airCon - the kids had to suffer with a fan (another 1.5 euro per night) rooms were dirty old, haggered and the kitchen area was a joke. They didnt even supply loo roll.

The staff were for the most part arrogant and miserable. Apart from 2 nice ladys who did there best to assist. It was very cramped, hot and sticky in the bedrooms even with the 7euro per night air Con turned on. The whole place was a joke and we felt very let down from Co-operative travel whom we booked with as we were very very specific as to what we wanted. It was not a cheap holiday - so we expected much better on the acommodation front. My wife had a terrbile time sleeping as the beds were like rocks, also the sheets stunk of god knows what (i wont say it here but they reeked!) Another load of bull was I specified I needed wifiAccess and was told it was in most rooms or in the pool area. Fine no probs, but guess what only wireless point was in the bar and you could not connect your own labtop. Instead using there own ancient PC terminal. Had to walk to the net cafe each time I needed to logon. For some this I know is no biggie but hell for me it was. Other than that Sidari a great place - lots to do see n eat and the kids loved the beaches and swimming pools. Please though if your heading to stay at the Orestis I would try change your booking. Avoid this horror of a place like the plague! Rant over - glad to be back :)

We were so lucky to find this place. We were having a girlie holiday where we needed plenty of sun and good food and good company to unwind. The apartment was great, very clean, plenty of room, a bath and a shower and well furnished kitchen (if you wanted to cook!)
The pool was fabulous, well designed and you could see the sea as you sunbathed by the pool. Sunbeds were very comfortble and there was always plenty available including some under the palm trees.
The owner was very accommodating and was quite often around for you to get to know him. He would go out of his way to ensure you enjoyed your stay. Nothing was too much trouble for him.

The pool bar was run by Giannis and he was also very accommodating. He was always welcoming with his cheerful smile and fabulous sense of humour. He had a wide knowledge of Greek/Local History and was very interesting with his conversations.

We could not believe that the peaceful surroundings of the Apartments were only 10 minutes away from the busy town of Sidari. We had a choice of the busy night life or the more sedate option.

We do not want to praise it too much as we want to keep this place to ourselves!!!

We have just returned from our half term holiday to the Orestis apartments, The accommodation is in a really good central position opposite the beach on the quiet side of Sidari with excellent views out to Albania. The rooms are well equipped to serve a family on a self catering holiday and come with a Kettle, Toaster, Microwave and two hotplates. The room we had was a studio which did not have a bath but had a shower which was adequate for us. There is a 7 euro charge for air conditioning but at the time of the year we did not need it. There was no problem getting a sunbed at anytime of the day. you could just pop over to the beach for a swim in the sea then return to your sunbed by the pool. We were also given a free safety deposit box at the neighbour beach star hotel which was next door but one. The people who run the Orestis are really nice and nothing is too much trouble. The Orestis is located a small walk away from Sidari resort center and is in a nice quiet location. We went to the local Sidari water park (15 minutes walk) and had a great day for 5 euro's each, We had some nice meals out at Seabreeze, Madison, Memories and Kavvadis restaurants, we also had lunch at a nice bar called one for the road which had things for the kids to do. I would recommend a taxi trip to Sunset beach to watch the sunset it is a really nice experience. We also had a nice walk to Canal d'Armore. I am looking to book the Orestis again for next year and would recommend this hotel to anyone who likes a hassle free self catering holiday.
